Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference is absolutely unique. Currently, documentation on WIndows NT's native APIs can only be found through access to the source code or occasionally Web sites where people have chosen to share bits of insight gained through reverse engineering. This book provides the first complete reference to the API functions native to Windows NT and covers the set of services that are offered by Windows NT to both kernel- and user-mode programs. Ideal for the intermediate and advanced level user- and kernel-mode developers of Windows systems, this books is devoted to the NT native API and consists of documentation of the 210 routines included in the API. Also included are all the functions added in Windows 2000.--このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。
The Native API Reference not only shows you the neat and very useful things that NT can do but does not expose through its Win32 personality; it also tells you which areas are covered by documented Win32 APIs, lessening, one hopes, the gratuitous use of officially undocumented functionality. Right from the start, you will find the NtQuery...() functions fascinating, and if you write kernel-mode code, you will *love* having a complete reference to the Zw...() functions -- no more cursing the horrible DDK documentation.
Intended audience: If you don't know what a handle is, or how Win32 deals with I/O, synchronization, and the like, then this book is not for you; read Richter's _Advanced Windows_ first.
My only wish is for MTP to have chosen a font slightly larger than Flyspeck 3, and maybe less of the black splotches that make the book's pages look like an unbroken string of obituaries.
However, keep in mind that it's a REFERENCE in its purest sense. Although there is some interspersed sample code, it's NOT a tutorial. You need to know already what you're doing before you will benefit from this book.
It is important to note what this book is not. It is not a beginners reference to win32. It will not teach you the how and why of windows programming, and it is not a good starting point for learning about NT internals (However, it is essential once you have understood the basic material and want to do more).
For developers wanting to learn about basic windows programming I recommend "Win32 System Programming" by Johnson M. Hart (ISBN 0-201-70310-6). For those interested in the how and why of 2000 internals I suggest chapter eleven of "Modern Operating Systems" by Andrew S. Tanenbaum, 2nd ed. (ISBN 0-13-031358-0). Chapter 11, pp. 763-851, is a case study explaining how the concepts of OS theory as described in the rest of the chapters apply to Windows 2000.
